The National Public Housing Museum currently has an exhibit called “Housing as a Human Right: Social Construction,” showing until Feb. 22.
The U.N. General Convention on Human Rights lists housing as a fundamental right, but it’s often the last right to be provided by governments the world over. The Near West Side museum, which opens next year, is one of the first of its kind in the nation and it occupies a former housing project complex. The exhibit includes architectural artifacts recovered from the Jane Addams Homes, artworks, design projects, and much more.
Join Worldview in discussing the exhibit with executive director of the National Public Housing Museum, Dr. Lisa Yun Lee.
